Cyclopean Wall – ‘Demo 1’ [Review]

a0539993018_2‘Demo 1’; first draft. For whatever a demo or draft is worth in our current mediated state, this first from Cyclopean Wall (Noah Gadke, Toronto) is full of promise and big muff. The C40 is a wall-to-wall of broad, droning doom metal guitar in a wash of brown noise. Four songs, each nearly 9 minutes on the nose, demonstrate the form is not the issue. The point is the texture, the space, the echo-location of new sonic masses in new soundscapes. Stephen O’Malley, Andrew MacGregor, Steven R. Smith, Andre Foisy – good company to be in. On orange tapes with glossy color sleeves. Recommended (for consumption and further development.)
